First Day of Third Grade

I can't believe Chase is in third grade!  He is staring at a new school this year - I hope it is a good switch!

Not sure what is up with the tooth brush...

Happy 2nd Birthday Keira!!!

I can't believe Keira is 2!

We had a quiet little celebration at home.

She managed to blow out her candles after a few tries...

She enjoyed her gifts...

...and her new dolls even got hugs and kisses...

She is ready for her Mickey Mouse party this weekend!

Summer has been flying by!  We had a little vacation in Breckenridge which was a lot of fun.

We hunted for four leaf clovers in the wildflowers. 

Sadly I got a stomach virus and had to come home early - I am just now getting back on my feet. Although I died a little at my OrangeTheory class today so I may not be fully back to 100%.

Back in Denver my Sunflowers and Dahlias are in full bloom!

We hit the Zoo last weekend and they had some amazing Lego animals.

We have also been pondering finishing our basement and I have dreams of a cool home theater.

Chase also had a big day!  He took his first advanced karate class and we learned that he got a spot at a new school - big changes!  I hope the transition goes smoothly for him!  I guess it is time to start the back to school count down...

Tomorrow Keira turns two and kicks off birthday season around here (with a Mickey Mouse party of course) so that should be fun.

Fleece Blankets with Crochet Edging

I discovered a new favorite project!

Adding a crocheted edge to a fleece blanket is quick, easy, cheap, and I love the results!  It would make a perfect baby shower gift!

Typically I have seen these done with funky bright printed fleece but I wanted a more classic look so I went with white and grey and I love it. 

There are a bunch of tutorials online. I went with a bigger piece of fleece (this was about 40 by 60 inches). I did use a skip rotary blade which made making the holes really easy. 

I can't wait to make more of these.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's day to all the amazing dads out there!!!  I am blessed to know some of the best of them. 

My dad is fun, caring, and super cool - we are Pops's #1 fans around here!

B is such a great father and husband - there is no one better out there!

I love you two!

This morning we ran a family 5k (Chase's first one)!  

He did great and I am so proud of him (minus the post run meltdown of course...)

Hopefully there will be more runs in our future...
